We’re going to try again for the swag. There was a swag snag last time that we hope to rectify.

Details:

When: Nov. 27th 8:30 am
Where: Different Bikes North Vancouver in Parkgate Mall.
What to bring: Some water would be a good idea but we’ll make sure there’s some there as well. If you’d like to bring tools you may but we’ll have access to some as well.
Lunch: Provided by nsmb.com
Experience necessary: none. If you are new to trail work we’ll have lots of experienced builders there keen to show you the ropes.
Time commitment: That is up to you. If you’d like to ride down to meet us and work for a few hours part way through the day we’d be stoked to see you. If you can stay for the whole trail day great. We wrapped up before 3:00 last time.

Digger and Jerry Willows will be there for expert instruction but we encourage creativity as well. Yes there is some work to do but it’s pretty much a laugh for the whole day as well.

   Digger put Mark Wood to work when he showed up on a ride. If riders roll through your trail day putting them to work is fair game! Even Mark – the grand poobah of TAP. In truth he came to give us some moral support and lend a hand. Photo ~ Morgan Taylor

We’re hoping to get everyone outfitted with some swag just to say thanks as well.

Hope you can come and join us! Let us know below if you can. Or if you have any questions or comments. Has anyone ridden our handiwork? Are we ‘dumbing down the Shore?’
